Dental implants are designed to replace your missing teeth, including the roots, with a prosthetic tooth that looks and functions like a natural one. Dental implants are made out of titanium, a biocompatible metal. This rod, or screw, will be placed in your jawbone to act as a root for your new tooth implant.
These implants are individually made and installed based on the exact measurements of your teeth and mouth. The whole process for getting a dental implant takes a total of 2-3 visits. After that, you’ll only need your regular dental check-ups, as usual.
To be a good candidate for dental implants, you should have overall good oral health. If your gums aren’t healthy enough before getting a dental implant, Sunrise Dental will work with you to treat your periodontal or gum disease so your mouth is prepared for surgery.
It’s also important to have strong, healthy jaw bones to get a dental implant placed. If you don’t have sufficient jawbone support for a new implant, the team may be able to build up the target area with a bone graft.
Dental implants are considered the superior choice when it comes to replacing teeth permanently. Where dentures are removable and tend to shift around in your mouth over time, dental implants will always stay in place.
Implants are individually crafted to match the appearance of your teeth so it blends into your smile beautifully, and more natural looking than dentures.
Once your dental implant is in place and healed, you will treat it like a natural tooth. Simply brush and floss your teeth as you normally would, and continue your regular check-ups. We will be sure to examine your dental implants to make sure they’re functioning as they should.
